I think a certain part of the resistance to change can be chalked up to the self-selecting nature of city designs. When Main, King, Cannon etc were switched from 2 way to 1 way, I'm sure there were howls of protest. Afterwards, those who suffered from the conversion (including much of the downtown retail) moved away, and those who loved being able to drive through quickly moved in. As a result, the political base has shifted. Most Hamiltonians now can't even conceive of our city without the Main St freeway.

The good news is that this feedback can work in our favour. Once you rehabilitate a part of the city to be more livable, more people choose to live in it!
